BZ Media LLC announced today the addition of Drone Business, a conference for drone business owners, entrepreneurs and dealers, to the International Drone Conference and Exposition being held September 9, 10, 11th at The Rio in Las Vegas.
InterDrone, with more than 100 classes, panels and keynotes in all, will also feature a two-day technical conference, DroneTechCon, for drone-building engineers and software developers, and an overlapping two-day conference, Drone Flyer, for the buyers and flyers of commercial drones. This will be combined with an exposition showcasing 80+ exhibitors expected to display their latest products and technology.
"InterDrone™ will be the largest commercial drone conference and expo in North America this year and the addition of Drone Business ensures that we are reaching every constituency in this red-hot market," said Ted Bahr, Chairman of InterDrone. "More than 85 media and association partners on five continents are helping to drive awareness of InterDrone and building it into the premier 'Big Tent' commercial drone event in this country."
Drone Business classes and panels will be threaded throughout the three day event and feature content on running a drone business, managing the latest FAA requirements and restrictions, supporting and educating drone buyers, improving the public perception of the industry, marketing drone services and where the next hot opportunities are likely to be.
Chris Anderson, New York Times best-selling author, CEO of 3D Robotics, and founder of DIY Drones will deliver a keynote address at InterDrone, and more than 3,000 drone builders, flyers and buyers are expected to attend the event.
The main exposition will allow manufacturers of drones to both source products from OEM exhibitors, as well as meet and sell to professional commercial drone buyers in the agriculture, journalism/film, search-and-rescue, and real estate industries, among others. The exposition will also include a drone demonstration area, the Yes Fly Zone™.
BZ Media has also partnered with the CTIA–The Wireless Association® to allow attendees going to CTIA Super Mobility 2015 to also attend InterDrone. CTIA Super Mobility 2015 badge holders gain free "expo badge" attendance for InterDrone, while InterDrone badge holders gain free "expo badge" access to CTIA Super Mobility 2015, with express shuttle bus service between the event sites running during show hours.
Both companies will also implement a whole range of coordinated sessions, displays and crossover attendance options for exhibitors and attendees from each event.
